This hotel was perfect for us, exploring the city for some days!
Very helpfull and welcoming staff, and nice rooms. Quiet pool- area to cool down and relax away from the noise and the heat of the city.

If we should wish for more it would have been a small breakfast lounge. That would make it perfect. But it's no problem to get something to eat right arount the corner.

This was the second time we have used Baan Suwantawe to stay a few days in the Phuket area before moving on to the islands. Will do it again. In fact we're staying there again in a few days before flying to Bangkok.

Pros
----------------------------
Very friendly staff
Very clean and nice rooms
Cheap compared to other hotels in same genre
Nice and clean pool
Poolside suite is very nice and has two bedrooms

Cons
----------------------------
Internet available by cable, but not free
Location by somewhat noisy road
Some loud music from nearby disco at times
No restaurant

Since I was here last time, quality of the place has changed. It is very noisy around the pool with families until late evening, staff is unfriendly and not helpful and rooms were not done until afternoon time. After complaining about that, the manager replied "So, you want to check out now better?" I will not stay there anymore. There are better options in Phuket Town meanwhile.

We stayed here to be close to the bus and ferry which are both walking distance.

This place is amazingly well thought out - the room is stunning and feels like home, the swimming pool was such an added bonus.

Staff were also very accomodating, there was a slight mix up with the bedroom given to us as we were given two single beds instead of a queen and they were more than happy to change us around.

Great stay wish we stayed here for longer

Phuket town isn't as bad as expected and this place was a big part of that feeling. Rooms are huge, bathroom is luxurious, great pool. Granted we stayed in cheap guest houses the weeks prior but still a great spot.

As other reviewers have posted, it is a bit tricky to find, but once arrived we found the rooms to be excellent standard; spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with dark wood, comfortable bed, well-equipped bathroom, large TV, small kitchenette and a very good value mini-bar.

Top it all off with a balcony with views over the excellent pool and you have a very decent little place to spend a couple of days before jumping on a ferry elsewhere or as a base for exploring the rest of Phuket (by car/bike or taxi).

There is no restaurant on site, but Phuket town has a number of good eateries (Lemongrass opposite is good). There is also quite a happening club up the road from Lemongrass (very popular with locals) if you want to take things up a notch. Recommended.
